It has been a LONG while since I have last posted…so here’s a quick update.
I have been working virtually since March. One would think I would have all this extra time and with the start of the new school year, I have been SWAMPED. Trying to navigate teaching from home all while helping my 2 kids has been exhausting. I think I’m finally in a routine now where all is better.
My family was affected (temporarily) due to COVID. My husband lost his job and thankfully we’ve been able to stay afloat and he’s back to work now. During this time I also decided to take a stab into direct sales (I know, I know) and started to sell Scentsy (I love it, shoot me, haha). It actually took off better than I anticipated and I’ve been putting more energy into that. (Don’t worry, I won’t be bringing any of that over here, I’m a very, eh, if you want it you’ll come to me, low pressure, won’t even message you to see if you need anything hahahaha. Apparently my method is working, so that’s good news.)
I have recently picked up reading again. It took me awhile and I didn’t make my goal last year to read 52 books in a year. Bummer. I set my Goodreads goal for the same 52 books and so far I’ve read 4! I’ve also challenged myself not to buy a book this year (with the exception of Elin Hilderbrand). So far I’m holding strong. I’ve been using the library a lot and hope to get back into Netgalley after I catch up a bit.
We’ve also changed our spending habits and so my non-book buying should help with that. I have plenty of books in the house to go through and always have my library. I can even request 5 books a month if my library doesn’t carry them (oh you bet I use all 5 requests haha). We’re cooking at home more which kills me, because I love to eat out (well…take out at the moment with everything happening around us). So I’ll be looking for more easy and delicious recipes and maybe even share a few here too.
I have a backlog of reviews to do and I will slowly write them and post them. I can’t wait to catch up with all your blogs and get back into writing and more reading!!! Here’s to 2021!
